Avalue RENITY ARTEMIS takes location applications to the next level
Avalue Technology, a global industrial PC solution provider and a Titanium member of the Intel Internet of Things Solutions Alliance, endeavours to provide a complete range of smart retail, smart healthcare, smart manufacturing, smart transportation and embedded solutions.
According to the latest report published by tech research company ReportLinker in August this year, the global UWB (Ultra-Wideband) market is expected to grow from $1.55 billion in 2023 to $3.45 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 17.4%.
Key factors driving the growth of the UWB market include the increasing adoption of industrial IoT, greater demand for real-time response in information system and wider deployment of mobile devices. In particular, industrial IoT, which is all about increasing operational efficiency through labour reduction and process automation, is the core driver.
In terms of applications, UWB is poised for explosive growth as its RTLS locating system is used extensively across many industries, and boosted by industrial IoT, RTLS is flourishing in smart healthcare, and smart manufacturing, construction, and retail. With a string of upgrades, the Avalue RENITY ARTEMIS indoor locating system is now equipped with the highest accuracy, highest integration, reinforced cybersecurity, and seamless real-time tracking, helping users achieve real-time accurate control of objects and manage smart objectives.
Opportunity: breakthrough demand, highly integrated comprehensive services
With demands and patterns dramatically altered by the pandemic, communication, AI, IoT, and Cloud technologies have been used to accelerate automation, digitalisation and urbanisation in the effort to improve industrial infrastructure so as to counter the impact of labour shortage. A diverse array of needs is created as a result, at the same time propelling development and improvements in Avalue RENITY ARTEMIS UWB solution in the fields of healthcare, manufacturing, and construction where it already has deep roots.
In comparison to the meter-accuracy of RFID, Wi-Fi, and Zigbee, Avalue indoor positioning solution RENITY ARTEMIS’ core competency is in its centimetre-accurate UWB location. Able to pinpoint position and distance with unprecedented accuracy, ARTEMIS is equipped with real-time tracking, high penetrability, and anti-interference capability. Its signals can also be safely hidden within other types of signals and environmental noise. Furthermore, ARTEMIS solution supports highly integrated services, enabling connection with management systems, such as MES, WMS, and ERP, via API.
To enhance user experience, not only is it designed with high-capacity battery for longer battery life, free online spatial measurement tool – ARTEMIS Layout Evaluation Tool, is also provided, allowing the user to detect the number of base stations within an area by uploading user map so as to optimise layout in advance.
Device management service added, real-time map with friendly interface, complete range of functions
With its new device management service, Avalue’s indoor location solution RENITY ARTEMIS has added a health diagnostic function. Tracking tags originally attached to critical assets or people are paired with devices using USB link. Data collected from UWB signals, including fan speed, CPU, HDD, and memory, are presented using a visually appealing user interface. Real-time alerts may be set up to notify maintenance personnel so as to prevent system paralysis. Tracking tags will only send out specification parameters from computing devices; they do not read confidential information so users can rest assured that their data is secure.
In addition, RENITY ARTEMIS’ new anti-fall tag can warn of a fall or collision event in real time, enabling crisis management within the shortest time and improving the outcome of rescue and recovery. Other location-based functions include patrol and inspection (by setting rules, area, and checkpoint), loss (reminder of return date/time), electronic fence to ensure personnel safety or for area control, and overstay alert to manage visitors/ activity time for residents of elderly care centre or visits during unreasonable hours so as to prevent accidents. To enhance user experience, RENITY ARTEMIS’ user interface is designed to be user-friendly, intuitive, and easy to operate, and data and reports are visualised with tree diagrams and linear graphs.
Avalue RENITY ARTEMIS location system targets users requiring high accuracy and in great urgent need. Applicable scenarios include high-risk environments, such as chemical plant, energy exploration and building construction, logistics service provider urgently requiring high turnover efficiency, and places that must be stringently managed, including factory production line, manufacturing plant, prison, epidemic supervision and care, and healthcare facilities and nursing homes safeguarding precious assets and personnel safety.
Avalue indoor location solution RENITY ARTEMIS features high accuracy, low power consumption and high stability, enhances efficacy with automation, and continuously improves operating process through big data gathering and analysis, enabling optimised and smart personnel and asset management.
